Electronic Caregiver to host community health/wellness fair


In celebration of World Health Day, Electronic Caregiver (ECG) will host its first-ever community health and wellness fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 2, on the Plaza de Las Cruces, 100 N. Main St. Downtown.

The health fair is free and open to the public.

It will include health education, health screenings, community resources, raffles, live music, family-friendly activities and more, according to an event flyer.

The health fair also will feature more than 40 vendors.

“Our goal in hosting Electronic Caregiver’s first Community Health and Wellness Fair is to bring the community together with a family fun event while providing attendees with resources they may not know about,” said ECG Director of Care Partner Operations Jennifer Ross. “We haven’t seen many events happen in the area related to our services, including personal emergency response and remote patient monitoring, so we hope the event helps shed light on what we can offer to help people live safely and independently. It is also an opportunity to explore what other health organizations in the area can provide.”

A tele-health company located in Electronic Caregiver Tower at 506 S. Main St. Downtown, ECG was founded by Anthony Dohrmann in 2009. Today, it has more than 270 employees and continues to bring on more, a company spokesperson said.

To make room for its new employees, ECG has recently renovated and moved into third floor of the Electronic Caregiver Tower, where its new clinical triage and telehealth services center is located. With this addition, ECG now occupies the third, eighth, ninth and 10th of the tower, along with parts of the first, third and seventh floors.
